Brazil Butt Lift! Holy Hottie Booty!

What’s up with E! Entertainment network? It’s all about butts and crap!

The last show I watched before going to bed last night was the lowest of all reality shows – Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

This episode was about Kendall’s dog crapping all over the house and Kim (the Kardashian famous for her butt among other things) and Kris either stepping in the piles or leaving them for somebody else to clean!

I shut off the TV and went upstairs to bed.

This morning at 5:30 I turned on the TV for some news and weather but since it was still tuned to the E! Entertainment network I was greeted with a lady exclaiming, My booty turns heads!”

What? More butts and crap! Only this crap was of the unsubstantiated claims variety!

Intrigued, I left the TV tuned into that channel to learn more about the Brazil Butt Lift System.

I was incredulous. Who believes this crap? Who buys this crap? Do they really expect their “flat, drooping butt to be lifted a “full inch and a half?” One testimonial shares “My butt was raised a full two inches!”

“I have exercise to shape the butt, lift the butt, round the butt!” says the creator of this miraculous workout.

Sorry, Leandro, your workout is good for firming and shaping the butt and the rest of her body, Alessandra can thank her mother for a butt like that. (yes, genetics, not your butt-lifting system!)

Holy crap!

But…butt….there is value in the Brazil Butt Lift even though it’s doubtful that anybody will come close to getting the results the infomercial claims.

The Brazil Butt Lift is a great workout.

If you do it faithfully you will get all the benefits of aerobic exercise and the benefits are many and you’ll notice your body’s responses quickly!

When you do your Brazil Butt Lift workout you will be repeatedly moving large muscles in your arms, legs and hips to music making you breathe deeper and faster.

Deeper, faster breathing maximizes the amount of oxygen in your blood. Your heart will beat faster and that will increases the blood flow to your muscles and back to your lungs and you work out to the upbeat Brazilian Booty Music.

Small blood vessels (capillaries) in your body widens to deliver more oxygen to your muscles and remove waste products, such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid. (Better detoxing than a 600 calorie, $7.00 “all natural Detox Smoothy!”)

Your body releases endorphins, feel good hormones, just like you get when you eat sugary, fatty, salty treats, butt better! Endorphins from aerobic exercise however, leave you feeling energized and good about yourself instead of wanting to kick your own butt for overindulging in greasy, fatty processed foods. They are natural painkillers that promote an increased sense of well-being.

All good stuff, and here comes the really good stuff you get from exercise:

Weight Loss

Aerobic exercise helps you lose weight and keep it off, butt for best results follow a balanced and healthful diet!

Increased stamina

When you finish your Brazil Butt Lift workout you’ll feel tired, butt overall, you’ll notice increased stamina and reduced fatigue.

Protection against viral illnesses

Aerobic exercise could be better than a flu shot! I’m not suggesting you discard your doctor’s advice to get an annual flu shot, butt you may activate your immune system. This may leave you less susceptible to minor viral illnesses, such as colds and flu.

Lower your health risks

Aerobic exercise reduces obesity, butt it may not raise and lift the booty. It will reduce the risk of many conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, stroke, osteoporosis, and certain types of cancer.

Manage chronic conditions

Aerobic exercise may help lower blood pressure and control blood sugar, butt there’s more! If you have coronary artery disease, aerobic exercise may help you manage your condition.

Increase your heart strength

A stronger heart has a lower resting heart rate and it also pumps blood more efficiently, which improves blood flow to all parts of your body (including your butt!).

Keep your arteries clear

Aerobic exercise boosts your high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the “good,” cholesterol, butt at the same time, it lowers your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the “bad,” cholesterol. This may result in less buildup of plaques in your arteries.

Better mood

You may not be happy that your Brazil workout didn’t do exactly what it promised, butt aerobic exercise can help to ease the gloominess of depression, reduce the tension associated with anxiety and promote relaxation. That can make you very happy!

Maintain your mobility and independence as you age

Aerobic exercise keeps your muscles strong, which can help you maintain mobility as you get older. You may not keep getting wiser as you get older butt, aerobic exercise keeps your mind sharp. At least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise three days a week appears to reduce cognitive decline in older adults.

Live longer

The longer you live, the smaller and saggier your booty will become butt, studies show that people who participate in regular aerobic exercise live longer than those who don’t exercise regularly.

I probably won’t be tuning into E! Entertainment again anytime soon, butt, at least I’ve caught up with the Kardashians and learned a new phrase that might come in handy someday.

“HOLY HOTTIE BOOTY!”
